I think that Roozbeh had these ISO 8859-6 characters in mind:

	0xEB    ARABIC FATHATAN
	0xEC    ARABIC DAMMATAN
	0xED    ARABIC KASRATAN
	0xEE    ARABIC FATHA
	0xEF    ARABIC DAMMA
	0xF0    ARABIC KASRA
	0xF1    ARABIC SHADDA
	0xF2    ARABIC SUKUN

These *are* combining characters, or am I loosing something?
